Chicago Artists Month kicks off! Amanda and Richard go to the opening shindig at the Cultural Center and review the shows there-in, Richard confirms his lack of interest in photography, Amanda says “Op-Art” 92 times, everyone loves Ukrainian Modernism! Woo Hoo!
In memory o….I mean in the absence of Duncan we pulled an archival book review, Joanna Topor and Book Guru Terry Griffith discuss Duncan’s love of “Witchy Librarians” and the iconoclastic book WINKIE by Clifford Chase, an Orlando-esque tale of a stuffed bear accused of crimes he/she did not commit.
Superstar Brian Andrews hums Randy Newman and goes and checks out art in Los Angeles(where oddly enough we have a solid listener base).
Tom Scharpling from The Best Show on WFMU makes a guest appearance.
What happened to Duncan? Who knows.
Amanda, Duncan and Richard talk to Collectors and swell hosts Curt and Jennifer Conklin. Rapping! Ranting!!
The Residency is coming soon!
On this week’s show Duncan and Richard talk to Gregory Knight Deputy Commissioner/Visual Arts of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. Kathryn Born interviews Brian Shannon on the wild and wacky world of insuring art collections. Big Red and Shiny checks in from Boston. Brian Andrews talks about the East Bay. Jason Dunda is on for a minute or so to make fun of incoming art undergrads and Duncan and Richard as they played docent for his first year students! It’s like 8 shows rolled into one!
NOTE: Duncan loves the US of A and doesn’t really want to relive the war of 1812, it’s just that Richard’s Canada bashing hurts his soft dandy-ish soul.
Amanda and Richard talked to loads of folks in the Peoria Street area for the 2006-2007 season kick off, maybe even you! Lots of people you know or have heard of get drunk and say embarrassing things! Awesome!
Also, Brian Andrews sets the world straight on how totally fucking stupid Burning Man is. MTV owns you, you sad, sad west-coasters who have more money than imagination, fuck the pre-packaged and throw your own damn party.
Damn, the Touch and Go party was mind blowing.
Tony Tasset, what a damn nice guy.
This week we visited the Tasset/Ledgerwood studio-fortress complex. We drove in a rented Humvee for hours into the jungle and were ushered in by the armed guard.
The interview is not to be missed. The outro to this show has a special cameo by Dominic Molon.
